Ambience: Forget ambience. This is about food. Tables and chairs are mismatched. The tables are covered with a soft linolium flowery plastic cloth. Wooden chairs painted in off-white and only 7 tables that seat 4people. BOYB, to bring your own bottle is allowed...wow...thats unusual!
Starters: This restaurant does not have a menu. Their philosophy is ~what mama and papa cooks, thats for dinner~ .It starts with fresh-from-the-oven slightly charred rolls that spew puffs of steam when pulled apart. Use them to sop up parmesan-crusted sausage and beans ($5), classic Italian comfort food tingling with roasted garlic and red peppers. Fry Zuchini, tomatoes, mozarella cheese drizzled with a reduce sauce of balsamic vinegar...that was my favorite. Roasted lengh-wise zuchinni strip marinated on olive oil and garlic. Marinated mushroom and also zuchinni paper thin cut filled with riccota cheese, to perfection.
The marination of ingredients are made with the best Napolitan oils and condiments.
Entree excellence: No telling what you'll find on any given evening the choices were salt baked branzino, veal chops or filet mignon on a bed of mushrooms, but Marco will suggest the combinations according of your likes. I did not have the gnocchi ($10.99) but I overheard Marco saying that is made with ricotta instead of potatoes. The place is also open for lunch while serving deliciously humble 16-inch Margherita pizza with plops of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and fresh basil for $16. Paninis ($8.99-$9.95), served on homemade bread spew puffs, range from one with homemade veal and beef meatballs to another with broccoli rabe and salsiccia (pork sausage).We got there around 7; so we choose the baked branzino and the canoli beans with mushrooms as our entree..,delish!

Sweet!: Im sure that deserts were wonderful but we were to full to even think about it. Tiramisu sounded out of this world, but we couldnt fit anything else.

Service: Casual, efficient and extremely caring. The family is chatty and warm and loves explaining the food and preparations while telling funny stories and explaining the family cooking history. Priceless!
Stars: Mark and I will give this place a 4stars!
